Now, I suppose I could have researched this diary a little further with some research into actual use of the words "fascist" and "fascism." But it was hard to miss, in the run-up to the 2020 election, voices crying out in unison: "Donald Trump is a fascist!" This was done as if we all recognized that a "fascist" was the sort of supervillain to be properly deposed through free and fair elections in which the "fascist" was to lose to an aging neoliberal.

I used to listen to every single one of Jimmy's videos. I was a dedicated fan.
Now today, I just can't face listening to him. What changed?
America Has The Tinder To IGNITE a Social Uprising - Chris Hedges and Jimmy Dore (44 min)
I’ve decided to tackle the Great Jimmy Dore Controversy piecemeal, since when I try to analyze the entire thing, I feel like I’ve eaten tainted hamburger.
--James Joyce, Ulysses
Last night Jimmy Dore had Dylan Ratigan on to talk about the latest "stimulus " bill that Congress passed without the Senators and Representatives even having a chance to read and study all 5,593 pages of this pork laden bill. Only two Democrats in the House voted against this bill, Tulsi Gabbard and Rashida Tlaib. Here is the log of the votes in the Senate. Bernie voted for it so he has zero right to complain about the Republicans or the bill.
I criticized Jimmy Dore because I made the mistake of giving the people who were the objects of his ire the benefit of the doubt. It's my default position, unless I have enough information to think otherwise. This attitude normally serves me well.
This time, OTOH, was the exception to that rule.
